With the passage of Senate Bill SB123, Louisiana has become the third state to enact a bill that provides for chaplaincy in schools, in advance of the passing of HB334. The “School Chaplaincy Bill” will be adopted and signed by Louisiana Gov. Jeff Landry. State Sen. Mark Abraham, R-Lake Charles, and Rep. Beryl Amedee, R-District 51, championed these bills for school chaplaincy, which has a proven role in alleviating tension, resolving conflict and bringing hope to school faculty and students.
